Fusion Façades has set its sights on becoming the architects’ choice when it comes to adding that extra sizzle to those building projects destined to join the Capital’s landmarks of the future. A prime example is Clapham One, an award-winning mixed-use regeneration scheme which has transformed leisure services across two sites in Clapham town centre, South West London. The Public Private Partnership scheme provides Clapham with a new, highly sustainable leisure centre, a new state-of-the-art library, a new family medical centre and some of the most high quality residential accommodation in the borough including affordable housing in partnership with Notting Hill Housing Group. With more than a nod to Gaudi’s Barcelona masterpieces evident in the liquid curves of the building’s exterior, the window pods in futuristic stainless polished steel are the realisation of the desires of Architect Mike Masterson of Leeds-based DLA Design in partnership with Fusion Facades design department. Mike McKee, Fusion Façades’ Managing Director reflects on the stunning development. Six hundred and twenty mirror finish stainless steel window liners were specified in 36 different formats. “The end result is truly a landmark building and we are proud to say that the liners we supplied,
many of which project out from the face of the structure, have helped make this award-winning project the most exciting mixed use structure in London today.”
Looking at the company’s involvement in St. Georges Battersea Reach developments, Fusion Facades brought its roof edge engineering skills to bear on the faceted capping detail which lends style to a busy roofscape. The glare-stopping brise soleil sprouting from the roofline and façades falls well within the capabilities of Fusion Facades, with its engineering skills base in aluminium fabrication. Then, the company’s recent £1m contract to face ‘the Filaments’ apartment block in Wandsworth SW18 with colour coded aluminium rainscreen panels, involved the company once again in an exciting landmark project. This new development clad in Fusion Façades’ anodised natural and champagne finish aluminium rainscreen panels, adopts, perhaps appropriately, Copperlight and Aurora for the naming of its apartment blocks. So it probable comes as no surprise that the company has recently adopted LandMark™ as the new brand for its comprehensive façade panel and fixings systems.
